What puzzles me, is why abandon the only platform where you have a prayer of making any money as an indie developer?

Maybe they think that mobile's just a fad...

My impression is that it's more a question of whether to continue putting resources into this type of game.

The "Upcoming iPad Games" forum has hundreds (at least) of threads about games that never came out and never will. It also has an enormous number of threads about games that have been released and are therefore no longer "upcoming". These old threads, generally inactive, don't seem to do any harm, and are useful to people who search for them.
You and me both know it's never coming out. Feel free to warrant this thread and any others as long as it makes you happy . Just taking up space IMO. Or should I say wasting space .

You're half right. You are apparently convinced, I have no idea. What gives you your idea? Maybe if you shared your information then you could actually contribute something to the thread.

Default New info

I decided to email the developers and this was the response I received.


We have been promising an iOS version of the game for a long time now. It's definitely coming and now we're closer than ever.

Because it hasn't been cancelled:

Nicely done!!

I wonder how they've implemented the control system...
I've played the pc version, and it's definitely very dexterity demanding on your fingers with that system.

They must have come up with some ingenious idea to make it workable on the iPad, and I would think that must have been a major contributes to the iOS delay.

Well, the PC version did come out in April. It was announced for iOS, PC, and Mac at the same time, they just went from mentioning iOS as the first platform to "is a game for PC" on their web site as of now. So it did not take longer, they just dropped two out of three platforms.

It's a nice game, I'd buy it again if it makes it to iPad after all. There's hope, they've posted a Mac screenshot recently...

I want to be proved wrong, but I bet we never see it.

Too much time has passed.
